Ghislaine Maxwell, who was recently convicted of sex trafficking, will no longer conceal the identities of eight men who allegedly procured sex with kids for them.

According to one of Maxwell's attorneys, the convicted trafficker will no longer oppose the public disclosure of eight "John Does" identities from a 2015 case.

According to the New York Post, Virginia Giuffre, Prince Andrew's accuser, filed the civil complaint against Maxwell in 2015.

"After careful consideration of the extensive objections made by Non-Party Does 17, 53, 54, 55, 73, 93, and 151, counsel for Ghislaine Maxwell writes to advise the Court that she does not desire to pursue those objections further," Maxwell's lawyer wrote to Judge Loretta Preska on January 12.

The letter was issued on the same day that a federal judge declined to dismiss Giuffre's action against Prince Andrew. The latter has since lost his royal titles and patronages and will face the lawsuit as a private citizen.

Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite, was scheduled to be sentenced in late June following her conviction last month on counts of sex trafficking and conspiracy in connection with the recruitment of adolescent girls for tycoon Jeffrey Epstein to abuse sexually.

US District Judge Alison J Nathan announced the June 28 date while awaiting resolution of defense allegations that a new trial should be ordered in light of a juror's public disclosures about his childhood sexual abuse following the judgment.
